If you're looking for the latest and greatest from LG, chances are you have your eyes on the new G6. If you're someone that doesn't mind working with a device that's a little older, but can save you a lot in the process, the firm's G5 might just be the perfect option.
LG's G5 handset made a splash at last year's Mobile World Congress with its unique ability to accept modular accessories. While it seemed like a good idea at the time, the execution from the firm wasn't quite as stellar, with the project later being abandoned altogether. But, despite that, it doesn't mean that the G5 isn't a good phone.
LG G5 full specifications:
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 Processor
- 5.3-inch QHD IPS display
- 4GB LPDDR4 RAM
- 32GB storage with microSD expansion
- 16MP and 8MP wide-angle rear camera with an 8MP front-facing camera
- 2,800mAh battery
- USB Type-C
As you can see from the list, it has a relatively decent set of specifications, even for 2017. While the battery life from the 2800mAh battery might not be enough for some, since it is removable, you can always purchase an extra battery. The handset can now be purchased from a third party on Amazon for $249.99. Since this isn't directly from LG, you'll want to contact the vendor for warranty terms.
